Interns are placed in dental clinics in the region and work with professional dentists. The program is highly suitable for dental students who are looking to gain valuable working experience in the dentistry field. While first and second-year dental students assist in basic tasks and shadow the doctor, fourth and final year students are given hands-on tasks such as extractions, fillings, and scalings depending on their skill level. 

This program is designed for dental students who have good knowledge of dentistry and are confident enough to work in a rural setup.

The 2 Week program is designed to give comprehensive dental hands-on opportunities as well as shadowing/ assisting experience to the students. The idea of the program is to set a rural dental clinic in the village or the village school and provide dental checkups and dental treatments to people of the community free of cost.

Note: Dental students can join the program individually or along with a group of dental students. Each program start date requires at least two-three sign-ups to follow the program itinerary.
